Let’s face it, the culture we’re living in is becoming increasingly more difficult for families of faith. As society becomes more and more secular, how do parents raise their children to not only survive, but to thrive in it? Is it possible to empower our children to stand up and even stand out in their faith when there is hostility toward them?
